Celebrating the Traditions and Arts of Native Americans
The Native American story is a vibrant and living one, not a closed chapter of history as too many books make it seem. American Indian explores the rich history and cultural traditions of tribes and nations, while celebrating today’s vibrant and ever-evolving artistic expressions, current history-makers, and the wisdom of the elders that invigorates and inspires past, present, and future.
In this book’s beautiful pages, you’ll find:
- Modern Native art, and its role in both sacred and secular tribal society. This book contains several stunning pieces from leading American Indian artists never before seen outside of museums.
- Music and movement across generations. Dynamic photography of today's powwow and ritual dancers, and never-before-photographed artifacts from the Smithsonian and other collections.
- The cuisine of a continent. How America's bounty enriched the world, and how a new generation of Native chefs, including noted personalities Loretta Barrett Oden and Nephi Craig, are reinterpreting an astonishingly rich culinary history. Includes recipes!
